Newly crowned WBO world super-featherweight champion already has his sights set on cementing his legacy after beating Jamel Herring on Saturday night.

In the immediate future, Stevenson is looking to unify all the belts at 130lbs with fights against WBC champion Oscar Valdez and WBA champion Roger Gutierrez, the IBF title is currently vacant.

Once he has claimed all the belts at super-featherweight, Stevenson believes all the big fights will be at lightweight against the likes of unified champion Teofimo Lopez and WBC title holder Devin Haney.

"Big, big fight, I gotta be honest with you – I think all of them guys is really good," Stevenson told BoxingScene when discussing a potential move to 135lbs.

However, it's a lightweight clash with Gervonta 'Tank' Davis which intrigues Stevenson the most.

“Like it’s Devin, Teo, Tank, Jo Jo, Ryan. It’s gonna be big fights between all of them, so I can’t pick a specific [opponent]." 

"But I will say like me and Tank, later on down the line, will be an amazing fight.”

Davis is set to return to the ring against Rolando 'Rolly' Romero on December 5 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calfornia.
